About Ariel

NOTE: I cannot do daycare in my own home due to landlord restrictions but am happy to come to you.

As the daughter of a veterinarian in the USA, I have heaps of experience with rescue and injured pups. I grew up with five large dogs in the household, each with their own medical problems- epilepsy, Addison's disease, knee replacements, diabetes, even one who was bitten by a highly venomous snake. I'm an expert in administering medication and special needs dogs are well known to me. I miss living in a home full of dogs and seek to aid others in caring for theirs. You can be comfortable with the knowledge that there is no dog behavior or problem I haven't seen and dealt with in some capacity. Animal care is a priority in my life and I love nothing more than curling up on the couch with a dog. I also volunteer at the Canterbury & Dover branch of the RSPCA. I have an instagram, @arielpetrak where I often post photos of my cats and our little adventures, feel free to snoop around. If a date is marked off that you're interested in for walking only, feel free to contact me as marked off dates generally mean I cannot do dog daycare but walking may be possible.

    Ariel was polite, friendly and seems to have plenty of experience. Our puppy seemed very happy to be left with her all afternoon!

    Poco and Lexi have been very well behaved since we got back from our holiday. This usually means that's they have been walked by somebody who knows how to handle big dogs and who has given them lots of exercise so that they are tired! We got lots of updates and pictures of happy dogs chasing frisbees too which was great. The dogs seem relaxed and happy to have us home and I am confident that Ariel looked after them fabulously.

    Wallace loved staying with Ariel. Thank you for looking after him so well. It was nice to have photo updates. We will definitely use Ariel again in the future.
